The #ProductEmpties We Loved to the Last Drop
From new finds to longtime favorites, these are beauty products that our editors use until the bitter end (of the tube)
As much as I love soaking up the sun to achieve a sun-kissed look, summer is long gone and I'm not blind to the fact that UV exposure causes premature aging, and can put me at risk for skin cancer.
I had tried just about every sunless tanner on the market with no lasting or satisfying results, until I found Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid & Professional Mitt, $26.50, aka, magic in a bottle.
Many people balk at trying self-tanners for fear of looking orange, but this product gives me an instant glow that looks 100 percent natural and dries almost instantly. The professional mitt makes the application easy and leaves no streaking behind -- an amazing rarity that any veteran self tanner can attest to. Since the product provides the option to build a gradual tan, I only have to apply this self-tanner once a week to keep my desired color.
The one thing I can't get over, though? The tanner instantly slims me and hides all my imperfections, leaving my skin looking airbrushed -- without any help from Photoshop.
Gone are the days of "looking sick." I'm a bronzed goddess all year round, now. --Jessica Amaris
